Strasbourg, near the European Parliament, in the rain

I spent the day here at the Parliament. We’re waiting keenly for tomorrow’s vote on our proposal for a revised energy efficiency directive, as well as on renewable energy and “governance”.

I went out for a walk at lunchtime in a park nearby and liked this view, on the way back, of the trees and the street in the rain.


As I came closer to the person walking towards me she said Look! Turn round!

There was a rainbow.


(I was glad, of course,

Why do we love rainbows like this?

The only time I have been shown dolphins, it was the same.)
